WHY BE PART OF SYDNEY FRINGE
OUR AUDIENCES AND ARTISTS LOVE NEW WORK AND EXPERIENCES
The Sydney Fringe is a great platform to try out new or experimental work or work in development. Our audiences are open and willing for something a little different so use the fringe as an opportunity to develop, test and explore your work.
The Sydney Fringe is constantly attracting new artists from a variety of backgrounds, mediums and skills. Use the Sydney Fringe as a great way to increase your network making new connections with artists and industry professionals.
MULTI ART FORMS
The Fringe is genre fluid and a platform for all artforms. We don’t believe in boxing you in, allowing you to tag your work with a variety of genres as well as giving you access to artists and audiences from the full spectrum of artforms and mediums. We also support specific genres and their needs by creating hubs around specific genres and types of experiences.
The Sydney Fringe works to remove as many barriers to getting your art out there as possible. We are open access, which means we don’t curate the festival, so if you can put on a show, we’ll put you in the program.
EVER-EXPANDING POSTCODES AND GROWING
The Sydney Fringe, once a small humble festival in the Inner West of Sydney now spans 23 postcodes across Sydney’s North, East, South and West, giving you greater access to a variety of venues as well as an ever increasing audience.
We have an audience of tens of thousands of Sydney siders that visit the Fringe every year looking for new work and new experiences. Put your art in front of a whole new audience from all over Sydney.
We are working all year round to find and activate new, under-used and unused space throughout our enormous city. Making sure you have access to anything from small cabaret rooms to giant empty warehouses, matched to your needs – from the traditional to the site specific.
BRAND VALUE AND REACH
The Sydney Fringe Festival is growing and audiences know we’re here in September. In 2019 we garnered over $39 million worth of media reach, and almost 70,000 people attended Sydney Fringe. Be part of the noise.
Use the Fringe as an opportunity to set goals, push yourself with new deadlines, and get in front of local, interstate and international industry. Every year Fringe directors from around the world visit Sydney in September specifically to see shows in the Sydney fringe programme. Our growing range of awards bring prestige as well as offering courses, supported touring opportunities, industry mentorships and cold hard cash.
WE ARE MORE THAN JUST A FESTIVAL
We are committed to year-round advocacy work to grow and strengthen the culture and night life of our city. The more of you we work with and hear from the better we can advocate for your needs – join us as we invest in the cultural life of our vibrant home.
